Over 9,000 Graduate From UEW

Prof Avoke
A colourful ceremony was held at the weekend at the University of Education Winneba (UEW) in the Central Region for 4,134 students who pursued various degree courses at the Winneba campus of the institution.

A similar ceremony is expected to be held this week at both the Mampong and Kumasi campuses during the 20th Congregation of UEW for the November session.

This will bring the total number of students who will be graduating during the session to 9,204.

They comprise 1,268 post-graduate degree, 4,743 first degree, 3,193 certificate and diploma. Awards were also given to graduands from all the campuses during the weekend ceremony.

The Vice Chancellor of the University, Prof Amawutor Avoke, in an address, charged the graduating students to aim at hard work while maintaining quality in any task that they would be involved in or embark upon.

‘The increase in students’ number could be attributed to the fact that more innovative and comparative  programmes that are market driven which link the lecture rooms to the teaching fields and industries have been introduced,’ he asserted.

Prof Avoke stated that the tuition they had received from the university would be incomplete and meaningless if they ignored the moral component of their training and adopted negative social vices which would ruin their future.

He underscored the need for them to acquire the skill of managing time for themselves to enhance general effectiveness and efficiency wherever they may be, adding that they should avoid unhealthy conversation and poor planning.

The Chairman of the Governing Council of the University, Dr Ruby Selenu Avotri, noted that the institution has a firm commitment to quality service, hinged on skilled human resource, accountability, fairness and timely service delivery.

She explained that in spite of the challenges confronting tertiary education in the country, the UEW had undergone remarkable transformation and improvement in its infrastructure, human and material resources in order to fulfill its core mandates.

‘We need scholarship package from corporate bodies for brilliant but needy students to enable them focus on their academic work. We need funding to put up critical facilities for the increasing number of students,’ Dr Ruby Selenu added.
